Hi, I'm thinking of ordering some tennis DVDs and I want to get the best match from each major this year. What do you guys think? I guess you could include the YEC too (although I'm fairly sure I'll go with either Mauresmo-Clijsters or Petrova-Hingis).

I didn't watch anything from the Australian this year.

I quite enjoyed Severine Bremond's wins over Schnyder, Dulko, and to a lesser extent Sugiyama. (I <3 me some Sugiyama, so that was hard to digest.) Of course all of that was at Wimbledon. Sugiyama's win over Hingis was GREAT. That was a stunning match. Ummm. Pennetta and Sharapova was good. Errrr. I wasn't really that hot on any of the quarterfinals on up aside from the final.

French Open...I mostly watched the men this year. I actually didn't watch ANY female match at RG this year. Weird.

US Open? Razzano beating Hingis was a highlight. Probably my favorite match the entire two weeks. Ummmm. I dunno, nothing at the US Open really struck me this year. It was boring.

Stick with Wimbledon.

AO- probably Sharapova-Henin. Had some great tennis, not a classic match, but entertaining nonetheless.

RG- erm........:lol: I really enjoyed Safina vs Sharapova, and venus vs Sprem:)

Wimby- Venus vs Jankovic- so gutted Venus lost, but some great tennis overall, and such tension. my kind of atch to watch:) The actual final was pretty good also, just for the brand of tennis on display.

US- Not a huge selection really for me. probably a couple of jankovic's matches, against Kuzy and JHH.

AO - Hingis vs. Clijsters
RG - I'm surprised, nobody said this: Mauresmo vs. Vaidisova, what a match from Nicole
WB - Dementieva vs. Shaugnessy
USO - I don't know, I only watch Semis and the Final and Elena's matches...
I really like LenaD vs. Granville, the 2nd set was very good!

AO - Sharapova vs. Henin
RG - Kuznetsova vs. Vaidisova
Sharapova vs. Washington
Wimby - Mauresmo vs. Myskina & Sharapova
US - Jankovic vs. Henin

Is it a joke? :tape:

It was probably the worst match in Grand Slams history between two supposedly top-players. "Supposedly" because Myskina wasn't a top-player at the moment and ended up with 6-28 in winners - UEs and Mauresmo played horrible as well.

i dont really remember seeing anything super special this year. the thing that sticks out the most in my mind is the wimbledon final.


also the janko-serena los angeles match with the right commentary can be entertaining ;)

No, I wasn't kidding about Razzano. I was pumped during that match.

I liked Hingis' first match againt Peng at the US Open. Lots of winners from both players there.

There are more matches I'm interested in seeing than ones I actually like. Like, I'd love to see Sharapova v. Safina, Jankovic v. Kuznetsova (I only saw bits and pieces--very entertaining), Dementieva v. Kutuzova at RG, Schiavone v. Peer (US Open--Peer was down like 1-5 in the third and still won, :o), ermmmm. Hopefully those are good.

i cannot BELIEVE that so many people have said Kuzy vs Vaidisova from RG. It was a horrible match, and the standard of tennis was terrible in the first two sets.
